Critic Reviews for Call the Midwife Season 4

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (1)

The show is never saccharine or manipulative, it just tells great stories in a fully-realized world. And, often, the culmination of its tales is truly beautiful.

Sep 27, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

The show compellingly tackles such tough subjects as extreme poverty, old age, disease, homosexuality, postpartum depression, alcoholism, faith, death, sexual assault, friendship, and as the narrator reminds us (a lot), love.

Jun 28, 2017 | Full Review…

The series is often moving without ever being manipulative; no easy feat, yet one that it manages to achieve episode after episode.

May 29, 2015 | Rating: 7/10 | Full Review…

There's something unique in the way the British drama Call the Midwife,... can make us feel so warm and fuzzy inside with its characters' familiar maternal presence, but [also] leave us gutted by the harsh realities of London's East End in 1960.

Sep 27, 2018 | Full Review…

Call the Midwife has all the comforting warmth we expect on Sunday evening but its greater achievement is continuing to tackle real issues of maternity care and women's lives in the period.

Audience Reviews for Call the Midwife: Season 4

  • Jan 27, 2019
    It’s a mark of the consistent high quality of the writing in Call The Midwife that all of the characters feel like friends after just a couple of episodes. This facet of the show matters at the outset of Series Four, in which two new characters arrive at Nonnatus House to take up positions as nurses – one, Barbara Gilbert (Charlotte Christie), a junior; and the other, Phyllis Crane (Linda Bassett) an overbearing senior whose attitude instantly puts the sisters’ noses out of joint. As is always the case with this story, the series then develops to tackle some of the toughest themes the society of the time could throw at its characters, including extreme poverty, broken relationships, homosexuality, prostitution, religious sects, migrants, cancer, alcoholism and medical scandals. That lot should be enough to depress any viewer, but the phenomenal dialogue – clever, witty, gentle, incisive, heartbreaking – and the fact that all of the protagonists are folks called to care for others, who all have a genuinely decent core, means that some brutal content is confronted and dealt with in a convincing, satisfying and generally entertaining way. Inferences to the period in which the drama is set and what really happened in run-down parts of London in the Fifties also weigh heavily on the narrative, setting up what is to follow in Season Five.
